    If you leave the iPad plugged in does it charge normally? Maybe just thecharging indicator is messed up.

    And you are using an Apple iPad charger that came with your iPad 3?

  • raporia Level 1 Level 1

    yes using original charger and doesnt matter whether i charge from pulg or computer same problem but only been happening since io7 was installed

  • tipsycat Level 1 Level 1

    Mine is exactly the same. I upgraded to ios7 last night, and now charging my iPad is extremely slow .....  it's been about 5 hours getting from 4% to 38% and the charger is quite hot.  I've closed down loads of background Apps too.  Still no change, and am using my original cable/charger in the mains.


    If you read a lot of other posts here, it seems to happen after updating to ios7.


    So, do I leave it charging all night ..... will it catch fire?


    Other than that, I'm getting used to all the annoying new things on ios7.

  • lllaass Level 10 Level 10

    Yes, it is an iOS 7 bug that effect some iOS devices (not only iPads)

    Mine acts the same way.  I found an old, ratty, beat-up cable (USB on one end, iPad 3 connector on the other) that is an official Apple cable (my little white transformer plug unit is also official Apple 10 watt), and tried it, and it works.


    Have you tried scrounging up an official Apple cable?


    I also have an iPhone 5 (not 'S' or 'C', just the humble, original 5) and I have not had this same problem.  My after-market chargers work fine on it.


    It's apparently something about the iPad 3 hardware that causes this, or perhaps something in the iOS7 code behaves differently on the newer devices.

    Hi there,


    I update my Ipad with the IOS7 last Friday.

    Last night the batery was drained (nothing adnormal here) then when I plug the charger the Ipad fell into a ´LoopHole´... meanning: it only have 1% or 2% of charge so it turns it self down but soon after that the device turns it self on (you can see the apple logo) to the turn it self off again. It has being doing the same for 12 hours. I have tried several things (leave it uncharged, conected to the computer and so on...).


    Any ideas... So far I have run out of "ideas"...

    Whay is the problem with the IOS7?

    Hi there,


    I figure it out.

    Before the IOS7 update I was cherging my iPad using iPhone or iPad chargers... since the new IO demands more power the only charger that is now working on my iPad3 running IOS7 is the 10v standard iPad chager.


    Good luck,

    I updated my iPad to IOS7 a couple weeks ago.  I always have charged my iPad with an Apple USB lightning cable connected to a USB port on the back of my iMac.  All worked fine until yesterday when I started getting the 'Not Charging' message.  I tried another Apple cord - same thing.  It's charging now using the 110v adapter plugged into the wall, but why won't it charge via USB either from my computer or a powered USB hub?  This is very inconvenient for syncing with iTunes etc to have to have 2 locations to plug into the computer and the wall.
